Peter David is the media-hopping writer behind Star Trek novels, Hulk comic books and Babylon 5 TV episodes, amongst literally hundreds of other genre pieces in just about every medium I can think of. I think he's also spilled a few words in the Bleeding Cool forum.

Peter David has also contributed, alongside Michael Jan Friedman and Robert Greenberger to A Perfect Beast, the official prequel novel with additional short stories set in the same world.
Both books are on the shelves. The movie is in US cinemas already, and opens across the UK tomorrow.
